Remove biscuits from can and cut into quarters. In a gallon size storage bag, mix sugar and cinnamon. Drop the pieces of biscuits into bag and shake to coat well. In a bundt pan that you have sprayed well with non stick cooking spray, drop the biscuits into the pan. when all are coated and in the pan.

In a small sauce pan, mix brown sugar, water and butter, bring to a simmering boil for two minutes. Pour over biscuits in bundt pan and place in oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until done. check the middle biscuits as they will be the determining doneness.

When done, remove from oven and turn the bread out onto a large serving platter. don't let it sit more than five minutes in the pan.

This is like cinnamon pull apart cake only better.




This is quick and easy to make but doesn't do well left over. However, normally there isn't any left over.
